I have a small problem here.. I know to add a computer to a network you have to go on the comp using xp and click on my network places then click on "set up a home or small office network" and make a floppy.. cause I did it with my other computer that has 98.. but when I try to click on "set up a home or small office network" it doesnt do anything.. nothing comes up.. no options what so ever.. so I cant make the floppy to put on win98.. I tried going on the comp with win98 and adding file sharing support but that made me put in the win98 cd and asked for a file.. vxd or whatever.. that wasnt even on the windows98 disc.. can someone help me.. tell me whats going wrong.. or where I can download the files that winxp is supposed to put on the floppy for me when you click on "set up a home or small office network".. thank you..
Have you tried using your XP cd, you don't have to use a floppy. And make sure nortons IS is switched off before you do it.
Insert your Xp disc and select additional tasks then select set up net work.
Yes use the CD , how do you plan on conecting the 2 computers?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
